Candor Industrial Supply, Inc was founded by Justin and Christy Alfrey in 2019 when they felt the industrial supply distribution industry was growing rapidly in technology and automation, but losing that vital element of personal service and connection between buyers and distributors. We try to provide our customers with the best of both worlds - technology and automation with a more personal touch.

We've had many people ask "how did you come up with the company name?" First, the meaning of the word Candor in english is defined as the quality of being open and honest in expression. We strive to embody true candor each and every day both internally and with our customers and suppliers. Second, we are both big fans of the story of Superman. In the comics, Kandor - which is pronounced the same way that we pronounce Candor - is the name of the capital city on the planet Krypton. Finding a way to give a nod to both Superman and the core value of honesty which we wanted to embody as a company just clicked. It made sense. 

We first opened our doors in Bloomington, California in January of 2019, with the mission to perform with the same agility, product depth, and service offering of our larger competitors, while providing customers with the reliability, flexibility, and personal touch of working with a small business.

Since those early days in Bloomington, we relocated and established our corporate office and warehouse to Ontario, California in mid 2019. We then expanded with a second branch office and warehouse in Tempe, Arizona in 2020, and a third branch office and warehouse in Flower Mound, Texas in 2023.

On February 1, 2022, Candor Industrial Supply, Inc closed its first acquisition in acquiring Moorefield Systems - a small but reputable industrial distributor focused primarily on metalworking tooling and machinery. Through this acquisition we were able to add premium metalworking brands like Hougen Manufacturing, Roentgen, Scotchman and others to our growing product offering which already included Fasteners, Safety & PPE, Hand Tools, Power Tools, Abrasives and more.

We set ourselves apart with intuitive VMI+ (Vendor Managed Inventory) automated inventory maintenance services, Product Local Delivery & Remote Drop-Shipping, including Expedited Freight Options, Tool Repair, Sourcing and more. We are your full-line industrial supplies distributor where our customer's targets, goals, profitability and success come first. 

Candor Industrial Supply, Inc is a Woman Owned Small Business Enterprise, and is also recognized as members of the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA), and the Distributor Partners of America (DPA) Buying Group.

We are open and honest. We are customer driven. We are here to serve, and hope to be able to earn your business and trust as a supplier for years to come.
